Library Online


Use Library Online to join the library, browse our library catalogue, emagazines, enewspapers, ecomics or request an item or renew an item already on loan.

Three quarters of our libraries have now reopened for borrowing books and using computers. See our Libraries re-opening information page to find out about the changes we have made to our libraries and what you need to know before you come along to one.

You can also borrow ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines, enewspapers and ecomics free of charge. Fines will not be charged while this is in place.

See our libraries YouTube playlist with regular content and information.

Visit Library Online to log in or register. 

With Library Online you get free access to a range of websites including British Standards Online, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Grove Music Online, Who's Who, Encyclopaedia Britannica Online, emagazines, eaudiobooks and ebooks.

As a member or a guest

You will be able to search our online catalogue for books and audiobooks (spoken word), emagazines, enewspapers and ecomics.

As a member

You can:

  • reserve items you find on the catalogue
  • renew items you currently have on loan. If there is a problem - for example an item is wanted by another user - the system will tell you that it cannot be renewed
  • record (or change) your email address - we can then inform you of the availability of requested items and send you an electronic reminder as soon as items you have on loan become overdue
  • book one of our public access internet PCs in any of our libraries
  • download ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines, enewspapers and ecomics
  • find out when and where the mobile library stops

Happy reading!
